What You'll Get
America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a one-year extreme sport activity pass at Action Sports Adventures (a $169.95 value) in Sherman Oaks.
At Action Sports Adventures, professional hang gliders, kiteboarders, kickboxers, equestrians, and scuba divers combine forces to administer healthy doses of adrenaline with more than 105 free classes. Customers can abandon gravity during a beginner beach hang-gliding lesson or surrender to the whim of windmill fuel during a kiteboarding kite demo. Experience underwater inhalation with a discover scuba pool class, or take advantage of a 30-minute golf lesson to learn how to properly plant a golf ball so that it will grow into a numbered flag.
In addition to the free banquet of bucket-list-shredding activities available with the extreme sport activity pass, customers also receive 50 percent off additional lessons, classes, and experiences that include sailing, horseback riding, surfing, and more. For $39.50, enjoy a cloud-popping session with an introductory flight lesson (a $79 value), or ascend Mt. Baldy with an all-day ski pass for $27 (a $54 value).

About Action Sports Adventures
One day, customers learn how to steer a small keelboat or plunge into deep waters wearing scuba gear. The next, they soar through the trees on a zipline cable or drop through clear blue skies over Southern California mountains strapped to a skydiving instructor. Action Sports Adventures connects these thrill seekers to more than 35 types of extreme-sports and fitness classes at Los Angeles–based sports schools and facilities, which allows them to join in a range of adrenaline-pumping activities without having to marry a Hollywood stuntman. Instructors teach gliding-flight technique in paragliding classes and powered flight in private planes. They lead customers across local waves in seven categories of watersports, such as kiteboarding, wakeboarding, and surfing. In the mountains, they lead mountain-biking wilderness tours and help climbers tackle cliffs in lead-rope climbing excursions.
Staffers from Action Sports Adventures also connect customers with outdoor organized sports such as golf, horseback riding, and tennis, or help get them access to wooded fields and parks to play paintball or ride BMX bikes. For customers who focus on fitness, they provide classes and sessions in nine indoor fitness categories such as MMA, kickboxing, yoga, and gymnastics.
